On this 4th of July, a Tupac video with a powerful message was shared. “I don’t understand why America doesn’t understand Thug Life. America is Thug Life. What makes me say I don’t give a f**k different then Patrick Henry saying, ‘Give me liberty or give me death,'” Tupac is heard saying in the clip taken from his documentary ‘Tupac Resurrection.’ “What makes my freedom less fighting for then Bosnian or whoever they want to fight for this year.”
The video stems from Tupac’s lengthy interview with MTV back in 1994. The full version of the interview has yet to be released, but it does include an appearance from Marlon Wayans as he and Tupac promoted their Above The Rim film.
